Hi! Today I am sharing my version of Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 May. I had lots of fun with the mix of rubs, stamps and Distress Stains. I haven't used rub-ons in quite some time.
I wanted to used the fabulous ship stamp, love Tim's transportation stamps and I am happy they are now available in a smaller size (Travel Ways set). When applying the rub-ons, I planned where the ship would be stamped so that I had a rough idea of what to place where. I didn't apply my rub-ons quite as distressed as Tim did, but instead, I sanded them a bit before inking the tag with Distress Stains.
I placed the distress stains (Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade) on my craft sheet so that it would roughly look like the sea and a sunset once they were transferred to the tag.
I love the small word rub-ons, the perfect little addition to a project. The birds and compass were stamped and the rest of the images are rubs. The crinkle ribbon was dyed with Squeezed Lemonade and Salty Ocean.
I also added two mini gears which were distressed with Salty Ocean and Peeled Paint Distress Paint.
Thank you for looking!!
